'''Henry George Seldes'''
November 16, 1890 – July 2, 1995) was an American investigative journalist
, foreign correspondent
, editor, author, and media critic best known for the publication of the newsletter ''In Fact'' from 1940 to 1950. He was an investigative reporter of the kind known in early 20th century as a muckraker
, using his journalism to fight injustice and justify reform. But by his time the public mood had changed, and reader demand for muckraking was much weaker. According to historian Helen Fordham, Seldes's career demonstrates how those who crusaded too vehemently seemed to violate new standards of impartiality and objectivity. His work was often criticized as too radical.
